Michelin award-winning chef Melissa O’Donnell is headed to Sag Harbor this summer to open a sea-to-table pop-up experience, Page Six can exclusively reveal.

We’ve learned that O’Donnell, in partnership with livestream culinary platform Kittch, will open Sag Harbor Kitchen in the space formerly belonging to Dockside within the American Legion building.

An insider tells Page Six that Sag Harbor Kitchen will “build on the American Legion’s history and legacy” and will “benefit veterans and honor the community.”

“It’s a really special space,” our source shares.

More than just a sit-down restaurant, Sag Harbor Kitchen will also host special events, backgammon, weekly jazz suppers, après-beach cocktail hours and more.

While Sag Harbor Kitchen will mostly take walk-ins, there will be a limited number of reservations set aside, we’re told; however, its special events, which will involve world-renowned chefs, will be invitation-only.

Given O’Donnell’s partnership with Kittch, Sag Harbor Kitchen will also feature classes and livestreams for the platform’s users.

“My culinary inspiration at Sag Harbor Kitchen are the great waterfronts from Lisbon to Sicily to Beirut, yet we’ve crafted a uniquely Sag Harbor cuisine,” O’Donnell said in a statement.

“We strive to surprise people with our menu of everything from great burgers
and steamers to the freshest seafood off the Montauk boats,” she said, adding that she hopes the “community focus” will turn the pop-up into a place that “introduces neighbors to each other and rekindles old friendships.”

Sag Harbor Kitchen will feature a limited menu beginning Memorial Day weekend before hosting its grand opening on June 15.

O’Donnell, the famed chef behind New York City’s Stella, Li’l Gem, Salt Bar and more, has won five Michelin Bib Gourmand awards.

Kittch launched in 2022 and served as NBA star LeBron James’ first foray into the culinary space when he invested in the platform ahead of its launch.

Celebrity chefs involved in Kittch include Marcus Samuelsson, Amanda Freitag, Amanda Schulman and many more.
